Forget the staycation, try a 'nakation'June 10, 2012 @ 12:32 pm
The Carnival cruises that pass through Seattle are nothing like a new venture that will set sail next year. The Carnival Freedom will offer the first nude sailing.
Carnival says the sailing, scheduled from Florida to the Bahamas in February, is already 70 percent booked.
It's part of a growing trend for nude vacations, according to American Association for Nude Recreation. The nude vacation industry brings in $440 million a year.
I've talked with nudists who have a club near Snoqualmie. They say the lifestyle is simply about enjoying oneself without the social or physical burden of clothing in a non-sexual, family-friendly environment of like-minded people.
Confess, would you be interested in a nakation - a nude or clothing-optional vacation?
